Love Yourself

Thursday, September 22, 2011

When the "trash" voices in your head tell you you're not good enough, jot down what they say. Then, take a few deep breaths and connect with the place inside that speaks to you with compassion. Write down the positive messages. (examples: I'm a risk taker, I'm an inspiration).

Now, TEAR UP THOSE TRASH THOUGHTS!

    Excellent advice! emoticon I like the cognitive restructuring. Oftentimes our internal dialogue is hardest on ourselves.

Hope you're continuing to do fantastically with your fitness!

Focus on the Good

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Negative thoughts tend to beget more negative thoughts. Train yourself to see the bright side and it will soon be your natural response.

    Negative thoughts and personal outlooks rob so much energy! Positive thoughts not only feel good but create good outcomes on all planes.

The rain doesn’t fall on one roof alone.

The thief is sorry that he is going to be hanged, not that he was a thief.

My favorite of these is the first one - I just love that thought for some reason!!

Wake up your taste buds

Monday, September 19, 2011

Seasonings do more than add flavor - they also bring a host of health benefits to any meal. Red pepper flakes may help prevent ulcers, cinnamon is believed to help regulate blood sugar, and nutmeg improves digestions. Next time you find yourself at the stove, open up the spice cabinet and start experimenting.

    I struggle with that. I tend to get the same herbs and spices that I know what to do with. I won't try a different spice unless I have a recipe and know what it'll taste good in. Those things are expensive and don't keep forever. Haven't you ever purchased a spice for a specific recipe and never used it for anything else! LOL I have! I try to avoid that now. Economic times are hard. LOL
